There is no Next Episode of Alone planned.
Premiere of a reality series in which 10 adventurers attempt to survive the wilderness of Vancouver Island with whatever they've been able to place into a backpack. Day one has them dealing with a lack of water and the island's large predators.
While predators continue to cause problems for a number of the men, water soon becomes a crucial hurdle for others. From fast rising tides to relentless rains, each of the men must adapt to his new environment or tap out and go home. It's the fear of dehydration that plagues one man as another finds his survival threatened along the shoreline by a rogue wave. But it will be a quest for a clean water source that sends one man on a perilous journey in a rickety boat made of sticks.
After only a short time in the wild, the men find that extreme isolation is beginning to take its toll. A survivalist undertakes a massive cabin project, one man loses his most important tool and another is charged by a large predator leaving him to fend for his life.
As the days pass, the remaining survivalists show signs of cracking. One man battles isolation as another breaks down after missing his daughters 4th birthday. But it's the real dangers of the environment that could spell the end for one participant when he finds himself stalked by a cougar.
A storm with gale-force winds pummels the men and rips through their camps, while one survivalist attempts to find a way to set off on the turbulent seas.
The remaining participants are finally adapting to the cruel environment, but the hunt for food leads them into harms way; one man is forced to drop his new boat miles from camp.
In the brutally freezing temperatures the hunt for food becomes the paramount focus of the remaining survivalists. While some find gratifying success; others face complete failure and obstacles that beat them down emotionally and push one man to the brink.
Temperatures plummet on the island and the remaining contestants are forced to face the onset of winter head on. One man risks it all with a risky move while everyone struggles with the ongoing effects of isolation and freezing temperatures.
Extreme isolation takes its toll on the remaining participants in the wild. Each man's battle turns to the mind as well as the elements.
Two men remain on Vancouver Island as the storm of the year blows in. The unrelenting elements, isolation and starvation confront both remaining participants, forcing one to go home.
The first six men to go home explain their reasons for leaving, plus an exclusive preview of the what's to come for the remaining participants.
